Lovely View

The Caffe La Terrazza has terrific views of the Duomo. We had to pay as soon as our drinks arrived (don't know if we looked like we were going to do a runner). We went late afternoon and it was still very busy. People who were waiting were rudely pushing past those who were seated at... read more

This sits on the 5th floor of La Rinascente, a department store in Piazza della Repubblica. We got there around 11am and sat under the shade of a large umbrella drinking coffee and soft drinks and eating some wonderfully light cakes. Best of all, the views towards the Duomo and Bell Tower were amazing. Great place to relax in Florence.... More

Friends recommended we go to this café on top of Rinascente department store for a drink and the view. We had never noticed the café on prior trips and it is absolutely a great place to have a glass of wine, appetizers (we had a cured meat and cheese plate) and enjoy the view.

We decided to pop up to the 5th floor for a look at the view. An Americano coffee, glass of white wine and a medium sandwich later we had taken a few pictures and left very happy!

We were passing by the department store La Rinascente and noticed that they had a terrace cafe. We had visited La Rinascente in Milan which had a great view of the Milan Cathedral. We visited the terrace cafe and found it had a wonderful view of the Duomo and Giotto's tower. There was only one other person there when we... More

It seemed strange walking through the store to get here but tucked away on the top floor in the corner you will find stairs to the terrace and an oasis of tranquility above the rooftops of Florence. You may have to wait for a table, but make sure you wait. The views are great and it was the perfect place... More

Tucked away atop the Firenze branch of the elegant Dept Store Rena Centre, there is positioned the utterly perfect spot for a morning or afternoon coffee, a tasty luncheon or a thirst-quenching aperativo..in the fine weather months THIS is the place to be! Two warnings though~the singular view of the famed cathedral means you are constantly jostled by the happy-snapping... More

Somewhat overpriced.The service was fine and the food was just OK, but the view is spectacular! Well worth a visit! When you get to the top floor via the escalators look for the unmarked stairs to the roof top cafe to your right. Seems to be a bit of a secret wit the locals, which was a good thing. We... More

i wouldn't call the views spectacular, but you are well above the crowded streets in a central location. For a spectacular view you have to climb the duomo. A glass of white wine is 5 euro. It does make a nice change from the piazza.

A standard cafe fare with a nice view. It sounds like the crowd fighting goes on in summer time though since this sunny blue sky day in winter sees only a handful of people up here. The coffee is good and service a good solid 4 stars. There are nicer views in/of Florence but those I shall not divulge! Over... More

Staying in Duomo

Neighborhood Profile
Duomo
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
